NSW training

ANZCA is responsible for the training, examination and specialist accreditation of anaesthetists and pain medicine specialists in Australia and New Zealand. To learn about the ANZCA anaesthesia training program click here. To learn about rotation and training sites please click here.  

Trainee events and courses

Our trainee courses are scheduled to run throughout the year. These courses are specifically designed to assist and prepare trainees for the primary and final written and oral exams. 

These courses are comprehensive, and cover many of the curriculum topics that are potentially included in the exams. 

The Part 0 course is designed for new trainees to assist them in commencing their anaesthetic training.

The practice viva sessions are held at various participating hospitals throughout Sydney.

A brief course descriptions for all of the trainee courses please click here.

Social networks and events for trainees


NSW trainees' Facebook group
The NSW trainee committee has set up the NSW Anaesthetic Registrars' Facebook group as a way of improving interaction between the registrars across the state, and as part of our efforts to improve trainee welfare. We will also use this group to promote trainee social events. Please note that this is a closed group, so you need to be added or approved following a request to be added.
